Inter Milan have reportedly rejected another chance to sign Cesc Fabregas from Chelsea, according to claims from Italy.

Calciomercato says the player had already been offered during the summer market. He’d have been part of the deal for Marcelo Brozović, but the Italian side didn’t want to let the Croatian midfielder go and turned the bid down.

Now Fabregas has apparently been offered again, this time for the winter market, but Inter are still not interested. Calciomercato say the player’s entourage made an approach a few days ago.

His €8.5m yearly wages are considered to be too high, and despite proving himself repeatedly, the club board reportedly think the 30-year-old has been past his best for a long time.

The website claims that Fabregas loves Italy and the league fascinates him. He’s also tired of only being a supporting player after featuring for less than 25 minutes under Antonio Conte this season.

If Fabregas’ wish to leave is true then he’ll need to find a club to sign him. Inter may have been considered fortunate to be approached, and there’d surely be wide interest.
